I have an obsession with Mexican food!! I haven’t tried anything that I hate! .
I love finding quick, easy and healthy recipes to make myself. I can control what I put in them so I’m not eating unnecessary things. Here is a healthier version of taquitos. They are one of my fav foods to make on game day. .
What you’ll need:
1 lb chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 tablespoons dark chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1, 10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies drained
1-2 cups cheese (you can use as much as you’d like), a mixture of Cheddar and Jack
Avocado oil for brushing the tops
about 18 small soft tortilla shells I used corn shells
Sour cream, chopped scallion, salsa and hot sauce for the side
Preheat oven to 400.
Heat olive oil in large pan. Add onion and saute until soft and translucent, about 6 minutes. Add chicken and Cook throughly. Once cooked shred chicken. Out back in pan and add chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix together well coating the chicken with the spices. Add drained tomatoes and green chilies and mix together well to incorporate all ingredients, about 2 additional minutes. Spoon the chicken into a large bowl and stir in your cheese until well combined.
Cover soft tortilla shells or corn shells with a damp paper towel (6 at a time) and place in the microwave until pliable
Take yourtortilla shells and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the shell. Roll up lengthwise and end seam side down. Continue with remaining tortillas.
Place taquitos seam side down in a pan (or one lined with parchment paper). Brush the tops lightly with avocado oil. Bake until crisp. ENJOY!! 😋
